These prestigious awards honor high-quality products and materials used in contemporary building designs around the world, from facades, finishes and flooring to furnishings and lighting.

A jury of 250+ practicing architects and designers from renowned worldwide firms chose Soflex as a finalist in the Walls and Wall Coverings category.

Among the honorees, Soflex panels will be featured in the 2021 e-book edition of Architizer: The World’s Best Building Products.

What Makes Kerfkore an A+Product Award Finalist?

Soflex architectural panels combine a unique base layer, made of particleboard, plywood or MDF, with our LTX black flexible backer. Together, they serve as a highly flexible, extremely stable base layer well suited for fast, easy surfacing with high-pressure laminates, veneers, metals and other semi-rigid materials.

The flexible backer makes these panels ideal for any project with complex curves because it can achieve down to a 3-1/2” bending radius. Also, the finishing process is fast and consistent since fabricators apply decorative surfacing materials to the panels flat and then form them into the desired shape.

These combined benefits make our Soflex panels the perfect choice for a variety of projects, including wall and ceiling panels, cabinetry, furniture and other architectural elements.
